MARLIES PÖSCHL (b. 1982) is an artist, filmmaker, curator and educator. She is currently based in Vienna (AT) and works internationally. Pöschl teaches at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and has previously taught at

the International Summer Academy of Fine Arts, Salzburg. As co-founder and former chairperson of The Golden Pixel Cooperative, an association for moving images, she has developed artistic-curatorial strategies

for exhibitions, screenings and projects in public space with a focus on feminism and ecology. Shifting between artistic, curatorial and educational approaches, Pöschl is interested in art as a form of knowledge production. She understands filmmaking as social practice and often collaborates with actors from outside the art world in search for polyphonic narrations and open-ended dramaturgies. Recently, Pöschl has focused on ways in which western societies respond to the ‘care crisis’.


Pöschl has received various prizes for her work: in 2022 she was awarded the State Scholarship for Media Art by the Austrian ministry for culture. In 2021 she received the Young Artist’s Award (City of Vienna) and a scholarship by the Akademie Schloss Solitude (DE). Her films and installations have been shown in several solo presentations, most recently at Kunstverein Ludwigshafen, DE (2022), Salzburger Kunstverein, AT (2021), CAC Brétigny, (2018). She has participated in biennales and film festivals such as the Vienna Biennale

for Change (AT), Stuttgarter Filmwinter (DE), Antimatter media art festival (CA), Edinburgh International Film Festival (GB), Cinema Verité (IR), Diagonale (AT) and others.
